When: 20 June to 13 September 2020
Venue: Museum Berggruen, Berlin Germany
The revolutionary artist Pablo Picasso, who broke away from traditional art, was in fact a huge lover of traditional European painting. His favorite European masters included El Greco, Velázquez, Goya and Eugène Delacroix. In particular, he loved Delacroix’ 1834 painting entitled Femmes d’Alger dans leur appartement (Women of Algiers in their Apartment).
This Delacroix painting depicted Algerian concubines. When Picasso first saw this painting in the Louvre, he was awe-struck. In fact, whenever he returned to the Louvre, he would return to this painting. It was his “Mona Lisa”.
In the winter of 1954-55, Picasso who was then 73 years old, started his own series of artworks based on the Delacroix ‘Femmes d’Alger’. In three months, Picasso painted a series of fifteen oil paintings and over a hundred paper sketches and lithographs.
Museum Berggruen is the only public museum in Europe where you can see Picasso’s iconic Femmes D’Alger series. Alongside this exhibition are other Picasso artworks and also paintings of other artists who were inspired by the Spanish artist.
